SEO Service Rebranding

(Gawkwire.com) – Professional search engine optimization (SEO) is a complex process that requires a many-faceted approach. SEO techniques change constantly, which is why so many marketing and ad agencies, web developers and local business consultants shy away from offering it to their clients.
Internet entrepreneur, James Schramko, created the immensely successful SEO Partner service in 2009 to provide a high level SEO service to his colleagues and clients. However, increasingly popular is the provision of this service to consultants, on a ‘Reseller’ basis.
Who Are Resellers?
Client requests for SEO services are received by businesses as diverse as advertising agencies, marketing and local business consultants and web developers. It is a marketing strategy, but it is one in which few marketers are adept.
The inability of these organizations to provide SEO to their clients became a thing of the past, however, with the creation of SEO Partner.
Schramko explains “We have made it possible for all manner of businesses to offer SEO services to their clients, on a reseller basis. Their clients never need to know that the reseller is not the person delivering the service.”
Report Rebranding
SEO Partner resellers receive monthly reports for each of their clients.
“We are now offering to add our resellers’ logos to their clients’ reports, which will streamline the reporting process for them.” says Schramko.
“Through SEO Partner there is now no reason why all ad agencies, consultants and web developers cannot offer SEO services to their clients and make at least 100% profit margin on top.”
SEO Partner Services
SEO strategies are constantly changing, and can include article, video, forum and social media marketing, along with blog networking and press release creation. All of these techniques play different roles in the SEO Partner suite of products, which have been tailored to suit both small and large businesses.
